North American Flags North American Saddle Mule Association

Youth Division 

The North American Saddle Mule & Donkey Youth Association was established by the Board of Directors in 1996 to provide an organization for youth in the Saddle Mule and Donkey industry to have the opportunity to earn recognition for their efforts on behalf of the Saddle Mule and Donkey, to provide financial assistance for the pursuit of higher education and to provide an atmosphere in which youth can learn positive values through trail riding, family activities and competition.

A youth is defined as anyone eighteen years and younger as of January 1st of the current year. Ownership of a mule or donkey is not required to enjoy membership privileges. Membership in NASMDA Youth memberships are available for $10 per year and all youths are encouraged to participate.

This nationally respected and highly diversified NASMDA Youth Program continues to enjoy strong industry support while developing "today's youth" into the mule and donkey owners/producers of the future. A variety of educational events are offered to members throughout the year. In addition to competing in mule shows, open horse & 4-H shows, competitive trail rides, coon mule jumps, and mule races, NASMDA youth members and their mules also participate in organized NASMDA trail rides, training clinics, cookouts, and pizza parties.

Sample Youth CardEach year, two $500 Scholarships are awarded to NASMA seniors in high school who have met certain criteria and will be continuing their education.

NASMDA believes that NASMDA Youth are the future of the Association and will continue our efforts to promote, protect, and enjoy the Saddle Mule and Donkey in the future.
